It was a very sad day when I finally realized that I had no chance of the next Amazing Race.
I asked earlier about whether it would be stupid for two 20 year olds to apply. Main response was yes. We sent one in anyway. We really decorated our package with the words "Give us an interview - You have nothing to lose!" and Stickers of Music Notes and Sesame Street Characters (we figured we would play up our age).
We filmed our video in two segments:
1) On the Maid of the Mist. That's the famous boat that goes right near the base of Niagara Falls. We were soaked, the camera was soaked. The video was AWESOME. (PS - We mentioned if we didnt get on, it would be a shame if that didnt at least make the contestants visit the Falls, because they are missing out on the greatest wonder of the world).
2) In my apartment. We talked about how close we were, and how we wanted to go across the world together, and that we knew we could win. We talked about how much we fight and how we annoy one another to the infinite degree, but that we couldnt imagine doing this with anyone else. We then mentioned how we were worried that it was alcohol the reason why we couldnt be on - so we said how we don't drive - as many empty vodka bottles rained down on my living room couch.
Overall I think it was a solid package, and at the very least, hopefully they will remember us NEXT year - when we will no doubt apply for the next one.
Would love to hear some other stories.
